Not hard at all

On Ratter, Tarin Towers explains how he bought a gun in California, a state that "has more gun laws than any other state." After a true and false test ("It’s perfectly fine to leave your loaded gun in your child’s crib”), a profiency exam, and a background check, he was the owner of a Glock 19 9mm semi-automatic pistol. A fascinating read, he looks at the entire process from the perspective of an outsider who has never bought a gun before.

In San Francisco, you have to keep your gun locked up at all times, unless you’re carrying it on your person. People who say they’re keeping a gun for protection scoff at this. They say there’s no way you could unlock a gun in time if you were defending yourself from an intruder in your home—if you have that many enemies, or valuables, perhaps you could invest in an alarm system that’ll give you enough time to open your gun safe. San Francisco wants you to lock up your guns so that children don’t find them and burglars don’t steal them. I want you to lock up your gun so you don’t shoot your spouse, or your toddler doesn’t shoot you.
